Paul Schomer and I both worked at NPR 10 years ago. He was with online music and helped produce the first few episodes of the now wildly popular All Songs Considered. He still considers lots of songs, maybe not all of them, for his “new music discovery blog” Radiocrowdfund. Paul visits crowdfunding sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo to sample the music of bands trying to raise money. Then he highlights the efforts of those he deems most worthy and tries to bring more attention to their campaigns. The goal of his blog is to discover new music and share it with as many people as possible. Here are the four bands he shared with us. Tall Sheep, Josh Netsky, Lowland Hum and Soft Speaker.
